(This amendment provides $150,000 the first year from the general fund to the Hampton History Museum. The requested funds would support the creation of a special exhibit at the Hampton History Museum highlighting Hampton's colonial heritage. The display would feature how Hampton became Virginia's port of entry and a vibrant commercial center. Virginia Indians, the first Africans and the English combine in an artifact-based story detailing the beginning of the nation. A adjunct exhibit would feature a log canoe. The Hampton History Museum will help share the beginnings of the Commonwealth as part of Hampton's 400th Anniversary.)
